The bridesmaid is certainly in the limelight during the wedding so I thought of creating these steal worthy looks for this army of the bride. I have handpicked these masterpieces from Purab Paschim who are into handcrafted jewellery since last nine years. Each piece is a work of art, painstakingly crafted by interweaving ethereal Swarovski crystals and pearls creating a perfect balance between classic and contemporary lines.
Look 1: The rules, they are changing. Today’s bridesmaid are edgier and Avant grade than ever before. A Nath which is traditionally worn only by the bride only can now be donned by the bridesmaid. Without looking over the top the bridesmaid can pull off this look by wearing the Nath and at max another handcuff to rock a simple outfit. The idea is to not wear too many jewellery pieces and keep it edgy yet elegant like how I have done by wearing these pieces with my black sweater and maxi dress.
Look 2: Being creative and having fun with the jewellery piece is what I am trying to do in this look. Breaking away from the conventional norm of placing the juda pin in the center of the bun I have put it on top of my side bun to make it look more fun. I am also donning a big Nath on my petite face in this look and guess what it isn’t looking odd. Rather it’s quirky and chic and I am done with another look for the bridesmaid. But don’t forget knowing where to stop is quintessential to making it look stylish.
Here comes my favorite one from Purab Paschim, these new golden earrings are all you need this wedding season as they are so chic that you can just carry these with any outfit and you will make heads turn. Don’t forget to get a little Smokey eye and a round bindi to give that traditional vibe.
Last but not the least I have styled a men’s broach as a haath fool (Handcuff) in this look. Like all other Purab Paschim pieces this one also has a special twist to it. It’s classically informed, timeless yet modern enough to complement today’s wardrobe. Quite effortlessly I have created this easy going look by just placing the product differently.
If you are looking for some statement pieces which I am donning here you can grab these at
Purab Paschim. These limited edition pieces are available at their studio – 12/37 old Rajinder Nagar, New Delhi.
Hope you enjoyed this post. Would be back with the next one soon until then keep it stylish.
